The Street Little Bealings
Welcome to Little Bealings
This pretty village lies along the Fynn Valley some three miles west of Woodbridge in the county of Suffolk, England
Little Bealings benefits from a thriving Primary School, a Village Hall and a number of historical landmarks such as the Admiral's Head public house (presently closed to the public), All Saints Church and the Angela Cobbold Hall.
On the northern edge of the village sits Bealings Village Hall with its adjoining John Belstead Playing Field, a facility which is shared with our sister village Great Bealings and was the subject of an exciting project to provide a refurbished amenity space with play and sports facilties in 2008.
On the southern edge of the village, the old station buildings have been converted into the Mallard Business Centre, home to a number of small businesses. Whilst just 5 minutes drive away, in nearby Martlesham, there is a major technology centre.
The village has a number of public footpaths and lies on the route of the Fynn Valley Walk. We also have four local circular walks.
Transport services include a local bus service which runs to Ipswich and surrounding areas. There are also railway stations at Woodbridge and Ipswich.
Bealings has seen human occupation since the Bronze Age with lots of activity in the Roman and Saxon ages - for more information read the webpage entitled A Brief History of Bealings.
During the escavations for the East Anglia One Wind Farm which archaeologists unearthed a myriad of finds all along the route from Bawdsey to the Bealngs and beyond. For images of the digs and some of the finds see the presentation given on 18 November 2017 by Dr Richard Newman which can be found on Playford website.
More significant finds were reported later - including an Auroch's Head found in Great Bealings - the location of which was reported on BBC's Digging for Britain. - and a hitherto unknown site of a mediaeval village in Little Bealings.
